In reference to lithium, Dante Perez’s new exhibition in ArtInformal treads on thresholds and maps the sense of infinity after falling off the verge. The uncharted space is an enveloping region, usually signified in the boundless and horizon-less of the sky. The vault of the heavens tips over the notion of the void as a bottomless pit. Lithium moves us away from infinity as an abstracted form, or it as a place, and rather informs us that it is but a rhythm often unseen because of its natural quality towards the effervescent. The sky is no backdrop but a flow calculated by aesthetic and metaphysical dynamic stirring in place at the same time pivoting towards a strong sense of nowhere- and nothing-else akin to spurts of satori.
Against this predominating variable, Perez presents us a filtered vocabulary that is not of our conventional reading. We are confronted with fighter planes, a rose, rigid window-like structures and a Georgia O’Keefe touch – all accommodating an honest underhanded play to the euphemistic glimmer of perpetuity. They require a different kind of interpretation as Perez espouses a visual language that bears both the many immanent associations to these forms as well as their flip sides. It is the artist’s usual brand of breaking down the familiar method of imposing duality – proving that something overcast is not really about the “light” being snuffed out, that the ultimate solution to the burden of the world is not in its destruction or that liberation is a place similar to the asylum but not exactly.
